SoCG 2021

The 37th International Symposium on Computational Geometry

Call for Contributions: Media Exposition at CG Week 2021

Media, Visualizations, and Geometric Art are sought for the 30th International Computational Geometry Media Exposition (CG:ME), which will take place as part of Computational Geometry Week 2021, encompassing the 37th International Symposium on Computational Geometry. Submissions showcase creative approaches to illustrate research and/or support education in computational geometry.

Important Dates

  • • February 17, 2021: Abstract and media portfolio submissions due
  • • March 10, 2021: Notification of acceptance/rejection (some contributions may be conditionally accepted, pending addressing comments from the PC)
  • • March 18, 2021: Final version of abstracts
  • •May 7, 2021: Final version of media portfolios
  • • June 7-11, 2021: CG-Week 2021

Content

The submission should be related to computational geometry, broadly interpreted, but is otherwise unrestricted: for example, it can illustrate a (new or existing) concept, technique or algorithm from computational geometry, it can explain an application of computational geometry, it can be meant for educational purposes or for entertainment purposes, and so on.

The form of media is broad, including algorithm animations, interactive software and games. To showcase the media after the event, for submissions that are not videos, creation of an accompanying webpage (self-hosted) or video (hosted on the Computational Geometry pages, see Technical Details) is encouraged (but not required).

Submission

Submit a portfolio of the work, such as images, video, link to interactive apps, etc. The authors should specify in their submission how it may be displayed, in particular, in the setting of a virtual conference. Note that if your work is a video, then the portfolio and the work are in fact identical.

Submit a paper which details the portfolio and, where applicable, the techniques used in the implementation. The paper should explain the connection of the submission to computational geometry, broadly interpreted.

Acceptance is based on both the submitted portfolio and the accompanying paper.

Submit via the EasyChair Link

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cgweek2021

Technical Details

Portfolio submissions are limited to 100 MB. Authors are free to post higher quality versions on their own web sites or other platforms, and we will include links in the electronic proceedings to their version, in addition to the official version (<100 MB) archived on the Computational Geometry Pages.

Videos should be 720p or better, using H.264, where the embedded audio stream should be AAC of at least 128kBit/s. Authors are encouraged to post the videos (public or unlisted) on a video sharing service.

The paper must be formatted according to the guidelines for the conference proceedings using the LIPIcs format, and not exceed 100 lines, excluding front matter and references. The number of images in the paper should also be kept reasonable. Typesetting instructions and the .cls style file are available on the Computational Geometry Pages:http://computational-geometry.org/
